I was born in Salem, Missouri, but raised in the small town of Lesterville. Lesterville is at the forks of the beautiful Black River in Reynolds County. I was an only child so I filled my time with books, horses, and playing in the woods and the river. I attended college on volleyball scholarships at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri and then went on to Ole Miss. Upon graduating, I was hired at Three Rivers Community College. I was a very successful volleyball coach, but not so good at basketball. After leaving Three Rivers I went back to school and was working on a Masters in Guidance and counseling when I became pregnant with my son, Josh. Josh is my only child and such a joy to be around! Over the years I have worked as a bartender & manager in various places but never be returned to teaching and coaching. I had a stroke in October 2010. I was very lucky to survive! I have been disabled since then. Geneology is my new passion! I have had fairly good luck finding my maternal family. Those surnames include Counts, Hudson, & Blythe. My father's side is mostly the dreaded "Smith", Brewer, & Berryman. I have a scrapbook with some nice photos of Hudsons, Blythes, Bowdens and Waters that came from my Mom. I am very willing to share my photos as well as any information I might have. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or information to share! Donna Mae

Hi Donna! We are 11th cousins through Andrew Reade. However, I believe Dorcas is definitely related to my Moody lineage. My Moody's were mostly born in Grainger County, Tennessee like Dorcas. I've heard that the Moody's n Grainger are all related to each other. We are probably related through her too. Do you know who her parents were?

Hi, Donna. Thought I'd put a msg here this time instead of email. I changed the privacy level for Mattie Quinn, but can't figure out how to add you to the trusted list &/or make you manager without your email address. So, if you don't mind answering to one of the private emails I sent to you, I'll be able to give you control for Mattie, & for any other shared relatives you'd like to contribute information on their profiles.

Hi Donna,

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.

Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas:

The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Thank you, David ~ WikiTree Mentor
